Saturday 10 November 2012

Chris Murphy (Pro JC), Nicola Tuxworth and Richard Cooke (both Edinburgh JC) returned from Baarlo, Holland as Dutch Open Disability champions having competed in the Dutch Open G-judo Championships for level 1 and 2 players. Fourteen Dutch clubs participated in the event as well as players from Scotland, England, Wales, Germany and Belgium.

Andrew Smith (Clyde JC) competing in the difficult +100 kg category just lost out by hantei (judges decision) on the gold medal while Alex Ferrier (SJC Alba) facing new challenges having moved up to –73 kg also won silver. Brother and sister John and Zoe Kane (Aberdeen JC) both came away with bronze. Despite some hard fought contests and well executed Ippons, Cameron Black (SJC Alba) and Aaron James (Jidel) both just missed out on the medals.

6th International Alcides Judo Tournament (Levels 1 to 5)

Sunday 11 November 2012

All the above players plus many others returned to the same venue the following day to take part in the 6th International Alcides Judo Tournament, which is a competition for all levels of Disability judoka.

Andrew Smith (Clyde JC) took gold by overcoming the opponent who had cost him the title of Dutch champion the previous day. The difference between Chris Murphy (Pro JC) gold and Alex Ferrier (SJC Alba) silver was a split decision going in Chris’s favour. Richard Cooke (Edinburgh JC) fought in a combined pool (–90 kg & -100 kg) and was delighted to take silver, his only defeat being a split decision in favour of the -100 kg champion. Greg Morrison (Aberdeen JC) showed that he was ready for this level of competition by winning silver. Maeve Morris (SJC Alba) who is improving with each competition showed great determination in her seven fights against very strong opposition. Maeve was in a combined pool involving several players from the higher level 3 category.
